The little fox nose sniffed. The bloody smell was mixed with a strange faint scent. It stuck out the tip of its red tongue and licked off the blood in the jade bowl bit by bit. Its mouth was a little sweet. It couldn’t help looking at the former empress on the bed. This is strange. This woman’s blood is not only different from the ordinary people, even her blood is sweet.
Nan Gongyin bandaged the wound on the former empress’s wrist, then he held the little fox in his arms and put a pill into the little fox’s mouth. It was so fast that the little one didn’t even see what pill did Nan Gongyin just fed it.
The pill melted in its mouth, and the little one raised its fluffy head.
*Squeak* Nan Gongyin, what kind of pill did you give me?
Nan Gongyin’s longer fingers smoothed the soft hair of the little fox. When his fingers moved on top of its head, his fingertips teased its pointy cute ears.
“Xi’er, go to sleep! When you wake up from sleep, you will turn into a human.”
Nan Gongyin’s voice was like the plucking of a piano string, strumming an enchanting song. The little fox in his arms looked at Nan Gongyin’s enchanting eyes. Its eyelids were getting heavier and heavier, and they gradually drooped down. A moment later , the little one slept in the arms of Nan Gongyin.
Before it fell asleep, the little one was still thinking about the pill that Nan Gongyin fed it and why was the former empress’ blood was pink and sweet, but Nan gongyin’s blood was normal.
Nan Gongyin saw that the little fox in his arms was asleep, he carried it to Xiao Xi’s room. Nu Er was taken away by Taoist Zhu Xu, so no one bothered Nan Gongyin anymore. The demon was still a trouble after all if he kept staying beside the little fox.
Nan Gongyin put the little fox on the bed, but he did not leave immediately. Instead, he took off his white leather boots and lay down beside the little fox.
Nan Gongyin lay on his side. His fingers gently touched the little fox’s ears as well as its snow-white silky hair. His thin lips slightly raised up.
“Xi’er, you and I are destined to be together Karma points of heaven. This time, I won’t let you return to Feng Lingran’s side.”
The wedding last time in the Spirit Palace, he and she were only one step away from becoming real husband and wife which was the night in the bridal chamber. Tonight, the God finally gave him to chance to make up for the previous loss. Thus, the little fox would stay beside Nan Gongyin forever.
On the way to the Southern Lin Dynasty, horses were sprinting quickly. Akhal-teke horses were just so so.
“Lingran, your horse runs too fast, wait for me!”
Wan Qiyu panted and let out a whine as he followed behind Feng Lingran’s horse.
Xi Er sat in front of Wan Qiyu. Her ears were almost deafened by Wan Qiyu’s voice. She looked at the back of the man riding the horse in front of her, and her eyes flashed with anxiety and tension. She wished Wan Qiyu could ride faster so that they wouldn’t be left far behind. But in reality, Wan Qiyu’s riding skills were far worse than Feng Lingran.
Wan Qiyu’s call did not make Feng Lingran ride slower, but it made him faster. He sighed in distress, “Ai. You don’t have to ride so fast even if you are rushing to reincarnate!”
“Mister Yu, don’t say that to Lord, he just wants to arrive at the Southern Lin Dynasty Palace sooner.”
Wan Qiyu glanced at the little girl who was protecting Feng Lingran, and a smile appeared on his mouth, “Xi Er, you are quite sensible.”
“Ah?” Xi Er looked at Wan Qiyu puzzledly.
Wan Qiyu continued, “Why does Feng Lingran wan to go to the Southern Lin Dynasty Palace, you should know the reason right?”
“I…” Xi Er’s voice seemed to be stuck in her throat. Her eyes flashed, but she didn’t continue.
Wan Qiyu saw Xi Er’s expression in his eyes, “Tomorrow is the canonization ceremony of the crown princess of the Southern Lin Dynasty, the crown princess’s name is Xiao Xi.”
When Xi Er heard the word “Xiao Xi”, the blood on her face seemed to be removed bit by bit.
“You should now clearly know why is Feng Lingran rushing to the Southern Lin Dynasty Palace in such a hurry?”
Xi Er felt uncomfortable for a while. She knew that Lord rushed to the Southern Lin Dynasty imperial palace because Xiao Xi was about to be canonized as a crown princess.
After a while.
Xi Er said with a pale face, “If Lord likes it, he can let Xiao Xi become the legitimate wife. I can be his concubine.”
She understood Xiao Xi’s position in Feng Lingran’s heart, and she was once jealous of Xiao Xi. She hoped that Xiao Xi would never show up again after she left.
It now seemed that everything was just her selfish thought. If Feng Lingran wants Xiao Xi, no one can stop it, not even the crown prince of the Southern Lin Dynasty.
She also thought through it that as long as Feng Lingran likes Xiao Xi, she could let him marry Xiao Xi as his wife. She wouldn’t fight for the legitimate wife position. She was satisfied as long as she could stay beside Feng Lingran and watch him everyday.
Even if… she had to bring water to wash Xiao Xi and Feng Lingran’s feet, she would be willing.
Wan Qiyu shook his head speechlessly. It seemed that Xi Er is trapped by Feng Lingran’s handsome face. She can’t help herself.
But who is Feng Lingran? The person that he doesn’t want, let alone being his concubine, even if she wants to be his maid, he won’t want it.
Xi Er can stay with Feng Lingran for so long, all because of Xiao Xi’s little fox.
Wan Qiyu thought of a certain little fox, and he frowned. To be honest, the little fox is really nothing except for her precious blood. Why does Feng Lingran care so much about the little fox?
Feng Lingran didn’t know what Wan Qiyu and Xi Er were thinking, and he didn’t care about anyone’s thinking.
Feng Lingran’s dark eyes stared at the front like an eagle, and his heart was a little flustered inexplicably. It seemed that something was going to happen beyond his control…
Feng Lingran slammed the whip fiercely on the horse to let it run a little faster. He had never been so flustered even if he was in a war.
No one noticed that a transparent woman in white was sitting on the horseback behind Feng Lingran. She stretched out her hand and put her fingers through Feng Lingran’s body, but she could not touch his temperature. He couldn’t see her either.
At first, the woman in white didn’t understand why Zi Yi on the snow mountain could see her, but now “Zi Yi” couldn’t see her.
Later, upon hearing Wan Qiyu’s shout, the woman in white realized that the man in front of her just looked like Zi Yi, but he was not the real Zi Yi.
The woman in white knew that Feng Lingran was rushing to the Southern Lin Dynasty palace, and she happened to be going to te same place. She felt the breath of Zi Yi there. She believed that Zi Yi must be staying in the Southern Lin Dynasty palace.
In the Southern Lin Dynasty, East Palace.
The little fox found Zi Yi in its sleep. It was discussing with Zi Yi on how to rescue Nu Er from Taoist Zhu Xu’s hands.
“Little disciple, it is not a simple matter for you to rescue Nu Er from the damn taoist. The hossu in the damn taoist hand is blessed by the power of Buddha. You’re not his opponent at all!”
Zi Yi was quite worried. It was not only for little fox, but also for Nu Er. Nu Er was an evil creature. She was extremely weak against the weapons buffed with the power of Buddha or immortal qi. Fortunately, Nan Gongyin told Taoist Zhu Xu not to hurt Nu Er which meant that Nu Er’s life was temporarily safe.
*Squeak* Master, just because this matter is difficult, disciple is here to ask for help! Are you not very good? You quickly help me figure out how to save Nu Er!
“Don’t squeak, it’s not that you can’t speak human words in a dream.”
The little fox said, “Master, disciple knows that you have great magical powers. You must have a way, right?”
“Little disciple, you also realize that your master has magical powers? I thought, I thought I’m the only one who thinks that way…”
When the little fox saw Zi Yi started to flatter himself, its heart collapsed.
“Master, can you be more serious. Can you first think of a way to save Nu Er?” The little Fox’s dark eyes suddenly rolled. It said, “Master, why don’t we go out now at night to save Nu Er!”
With Zi Yi here, I should be able to quietly rescue Nu Er from the hands of the damn taoist.
Zi Yi’s phoenix eyes lit up and snapped his fingers, “Little disciple, it’s good for you to notice.”
“Then we go now.”
“It’s fine to go now, but you have to kiss master.”
“Little disciple, don’t be shy. As the saying goes, being a master for one day is the same as being father for whole life. So, it’s fine for you to kiss your father.”
“Little disciple, what are you still hesitating? Hurry up, don’t waste master’s time.”
Zi Yi saw the little one twitched its mouth at him, so he did it by himself. He picked up the little one, turned his handsome face sideways and approached the little fox’s mouth.
Upon seeing this, little fox was helpless.
Zi Yi’s handsome face was getting closer and closer to the little fox’s mouth. He was so complacent in his heart. As he almost touched the little fox’s mouth, the little fox started struggling in his hand. How would Zi Yi let go of such a good chance?
His handsome face continued to get closer.
The little fox spat at his handsome face.
The man froze. The little fox’s saliva dripped down from his handsome face. How disgusting was that?
The little fox slipped out from Zi Yi’s hand and said in a human language, “Master, if you keep bullying me, I will not just spit saliva at you next time.”
Zi Yi wiped off the disgusting saliva on his face, “Spitting at master is disrespectful. Little disciple, you really make master sad! Then master will kiss you again next time, what can you do?”
Little fox glanced at Zi Yi, “Next time I will bite and destroy your handsome face.”
Zi Yi’s mouth twitched. Isn’t this little fox too cruel?
Little fox and Zi Yi left the East Palace and went to look for Taoist Zhu Xu. The little fox was clear about the map of this palace.
About an hour later, little fox took Zi Yi to find Taoist Zhu Xu’s residence in the palace.
“Master, look, that is Taoist Zhu Xu, Nu Er must be in his room.”
The candle in the room was flickering, reflecting a taoist with a wooden hairpin on his head. He was meditating in the room.
“Master will find a way to get him away, you go in and save Nu Er.” After a pause, Zi Yi said again, “Nu Er has the yin (negative) attribute, she can see you.”
The little fox nodded .When Zi Yi went to distract Taoist Zhu Xu, its whole body began to get hot. It was familiar with this kind of heat and she had experienced it multiple times.
However, after each time, it would become a human.
Little fox’s eyes widened, It can’t be right? In such a critical moment of saving Nu Er, I’m going to turn into a human?
